Red Snake - Mila Takujan
My name is Chern’ee Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from Mount Isa in Queensland. This painting is called “Mila Takujan” which means “Red Snake” in the Kalkadoon language
This painting tells the story of red snake who used to breathe fire, due to his jealousy he can now only speak with the poison and forked tongue of a red bellied black snake.
